Solved $400-500 Console Streaming Build **First time build** Tags: Streaming Build Systems Last response: August 14, 2013 9:34 PM in Systems Share TheTheory August 14, 2013 8:57:01 PM Approximate Purchase Date: Within a week Budget Range: 400-500 System Usage from Most to Least Important: Streaming & Internet use only. No gaming. Are you buying a monitor: No Additional Comments: I have limited logic with building PCs and only need this for streaming and internet purposes. Could also be a laptop if cheaper. And Most Importantly, Why Are You Upgrading: My current Desktop can not handle streaming at 720p, not even 480 without lagging and skipping frames.
